As per this post and in anticipation of the forthcoming Audiograft 2012 festival, during each day in February 2011, a recording created during Audiograft 2011 will be played here as a Sound Diary entry. The whole series will act like an album of sonic snapshots from the festival; though without frames, without borders, and filled with the overspilling sounds of the surrounding world.

This recording features the end of Paul Whitty and Stephen Cornford’s performance of “it pays my way and it corrodes my soul” at Modern Art Oxford during Audiograft 2011 and the applause that followed.

That concludes our Audiograft 2011 Sound Diary; look out in mid-May for the Audiograft 2012 Sound Diary, and at the end of February for the entire Audiograft 2011 archive.

12.00 …singing in the park

On a recent visit to Berlin to perform it pays my way and it corrodes my soul with Stephen Cornford at LEAP, I made these recordings. Whenever I could I stopped and recorded my situation from the raucous queue outside a nightclub in Oxford to the escalators at Stansted and a Mexican dinner in Berlin. The recordings were made using an Edirol R-09HR.

Extra context here.
